Working with School Personnel for Safer Schools
With the passage of “Don’t Say Gay” bills in numerous states and book bans making national headlines, the past few years have been devastating for safe schools advocates. Many chapters are having a much tougher time getting their foot in the door at schools in their community – if they’re able to at all. This session examines the many different ways we can strive to make schools safer for LGBTQ+ students, by identifying the best ways to work with school personnel, from bus drivers and cafeteria staff to district level administrators and the school board.
